The question of whether nonesterified fatty acids are oxidized by the brain in pathological circumstances remains open to further study. During diabetic ketoacidosis the circulating concentrations of nonesterified fatty acids are raised considerably. Kety et a]. (1948) found that patients with diabetic ketoacidosis and altered consciousness had a respiratory quotient of 0.92, whereas patients in coma had a respiratory quotient of 0.88. This was compatible with the interpretation that fatty acids were supplying 25% and 40% of the respiratory fuel, respectively.
