Abstract

The paper by Inal-Ince and colleagues (pag. 162-167) examines fatigue in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) relating it to multi dimensional in- dices of overall disease severity, BODE and SAFE. It is the selection of these indices that will be examined in this Editorial. COPD is now considered a multi dimensional dis- ease, in fact, quite remarkably so. A little history will remind how this situation has arisen.
