Respiratory Quotient - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics
RQ values for fat, protein, and carbohydrate are 0.7, 0.8, and 1.0, respectively. Thus, an RQ of >1.0 might suggest excessive carbohydrate or calorie provision that can result in increased CO 2 production and cause difficulty weaning from mechanical ventilation. A RQ of <0.7 might suggest underfeeding and use of ketones as a fuel source.
