BACKGROUND: We report a comprehensive overview of current COPD therapies from a real-world experience.

OBJECTIVE: Critically review the opportunities and the challenges occurring in the real-world treatment of COPD.

METHODS: This is a review that also reports data to evaluate COPD patient' response to standardized therapy in a real-world setting.

CONCLUSION: Comprehensive assessment of COPD management requires strategies able to evaluate efficacy and usefulness in a real-world population, that take into account the interaction between experience and academic training, research, adherence to guidelines and judgments in order to plan the appropriate and optimum use of available strategies.
