Jeremy Renner uses oxygen chamber amid recovery
Jeremy Renner has revealed that he's been using a hyperbaric oxygen chamber amid his ongoing recovery.
Jeremy Renner has been using a hyperbaric oxygen chamber as he continues his recovery from his near-death snowplow accident.
The 52-year-old actor was hospitalised on New Year's Day (01.01.23), after he suffered blunt chest trauma and 30 broken bones after being hit by a snowplow, and Jeremy has now taken to social media to reveal that he's still receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which has can be used to treat multiple medical issues.
Alongside a photo of himself receiving the treatment, Jeremy wrote on Instagram: "Hyperbaric chamber, 2 atmosphere pressure, high oxygen, 2x daily (sic)"
