In North Georgia, only about 8 percent of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside of a hospital survive. For years, the North Georgia Heart Foundation has worked to improve those odds. In the last two years, the heart foundation has upped its efforts, training approximately 11,000 people in hands-only CPR. “We’re primarily providing CPR education and AED education and awareness in the community and in the schools,” board chairman Dr. George Ordway told The Times Wednesday.
