Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a systemic and disabling pathological condition with a progressive course, characterised by lung function impairment with not fully reversible airflow limitation. It represents a major health problem world-wide and it is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality.
