Twelve cases of ketoacidosis coma were admitted to the Department of Metabolic and Endocrine Diseases from 1981-1983. The proposed therapeutic plan results in good results in 50% of the cases. This high mortality rate was caused by numerous difficulties including: the absence of a medical resuscitation service at the General Hosptial of Brazzaville, lack of education of diabetics, insufficient number of personnel, unreliability of the biological data and the impossibility of carrying out certain biological tests. Following an analysis of therapeutic plans used, 2 plans were proposed which were based on the stage of the coma and which reaffirmed the value of using small doses of insulin.
