British physician John Ferriar (Fig. 1) is included in the Profiles in Cardiology series because he published the first monograph on digitalis after William Withering ( 1785). Ferriar was the first to suggest that digitalis was beneficial in dropsy (severe congestive heart failure), in part because it appeared to act directly on the heart. He was also one ofthe first physicians to recognize an association between acute rheumatism and heal disease. Fetriar was born in Oxnani.
