Implementation of perioperative glucose management bundles1  through integration of technology with clinical decision support systems was recently presented by Ehrenfeld et al.2  Although their results suggest an association between optimal glucose control and reduction in surgical site infections, the authors did not clearly discuss whether the implementation of the glucose bundle was unique or associated with other quality improvement initiatives earlier or concurrently initiated with the study. In addition, the glycosylated hemoglobin (HgbA1C) value, after the propensity score matching, is missing from table 2 in Ehrenfeld et al.
