Abstract

Background: This study estimated the healthcare resource utilisation and costs of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients, staged by severity, in the Italian pneumology departments (PDs). Methods: The project was a multi-centre observational study conducted in 11 Italian PDs throughout the country. A total of 268 patients were recruited and followed prospectively for 1 year. For the purpose of analysis, patients were divided into four groups according to the severity at onset:•mild COPD (stage I)-postbronchodilator FEV1/FVC 1 ≥ 80% of predicted;•moderate COPD (stage II)-postbronchodilator FEV1/FVC 1<80% of predicted;•severe COPD (stage III)-postbronchodilator FEV1/FVC 1 1/FVC 1
