Question
Two symbols appear when my bp reading comes up... one is a shaking heart (irregular heart rate) and the other is a shaking body, I think, what is the meaning of that symbol?   Omron HEM741 Crel model

Answer
Hi Julie,
I don't know anything about these machines. Why don't you have your blood pressure checked by a doctor/nurse etc? A much more reliable option that will also evaluate your other heart health risks:
