In this treatise Senac discusses heart disorders and diseases that he analyzed personally, as well as diagnoses that were determined by other physicians. He was the first physician to describe the correlation between atrial fibrillation and mitral valve disease, as well as the first to provide a comprehensive study of cardiac hypertrophy. He also conducted research of cinchona extract and rhubarb as possible treatments for cardiac irregularities. Moreover he served as a personal physician to King Louis XV (1710 - 1774) from 1752 until his death.
