Background: The study aimed to find the effect of Structured Cardiorespiratory fitness protocol on Physical Function Performance in geriatric patients undergoing long term physiotherapy treatment. Method: An Experimental Study was conducted among 45 Geriatric patients undergoing more than 2 month Physiotherapy treatment. The intervention were carried out daily for 6 weeks. All Patients received Structured Cardiorespiratory fitness Protocol. The interpretation of the study was done on the basis of comparing pretest and post-test assessment of Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEFR), Respiratory Rate, Borg scale. Result: pre and post-test Comparison result, respiratory rate (13.6 ± 1.42 and 13.8 ± 1.25; p=0.026) and PEFR (168.67 ± 48.97 and 171.11 ± 49.55; p=0.02) were found to be statistically significant and Borg scale were found to be extremely significant (15.73 ± 1.42 and 15.02 ± 0.23; p< 0.0001). Conclusion: A Structured Cardiorespiratory fitness protocol was improved the physical function performance in geriatric patient undergoing long term physiotherapy treatment.
