The respiratory quotient (R.Q.) of the rat diaphragm has been separately obtained for the three component regions of the diaphragm (dorsal 0.753, ventral 0.941, and lateral 1.143). It is pointed out that the generally accepted value of 0.7 for the rat diaphragm therefore cannot be regarded as a true index indicating the nature of the fuel metabolized in the diaphragm.
