The geriatric population belongs to the age group 70 years and encounter debilitating changes in almost all the system of the body. This study was aimed to record and asses the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) in elderly population involved, to predict and prevent further deterioration by assessing the cardiac function with respect to the cardiac regulatory mechanisms.To assess the autonomic changes , in this study different parameters of HRV were recorded in the people of age above 70yrs and compared with normal individuals belongs to the age less than 70years during normal(N),deep breathing(DB) and cold pressor test(CPT) conditions. Showed that the SDANN, Time domain HRV was decreased as age advances in all the conditions except the CPT condition. This study showed that as age advances the autonomic activity decreases, the degree of decrease is more in sympathetic part than parasympathetic.
