WAYNE, N.J., Sept. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Getinge, a leading global provider of innovative medical technology, has created a vibrant charitable donation program -- "Color for the Kids!" -- to raise funds and support congenital heart defect research by The Children's Heart Foundation. Pediatric patients and caregivers, healthcare providers and the general public are encouraged to download a coloring picture at www.getinge.com/colorforthekids and submit the completed artwork to the gallery on the website. For each artwork submission, Getinge will donate $50 for a total of up to $5,000 to The Children's Heart Foundation. The fundraising campaign will continue throughout the year.

"The Children's Heart Foundation is committed to funding the most promising research in the area of congenital heart defects, the most common birth defect, affecting nearly one of every 100 babies born in the United States," said Tamara S. Thomas, National Board President of The Children's Heart Foundation. "We are grateful to Getinge for creating the fun and colorful 'Color for the Kids!' program to help support our mission of advancing the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects."

"We are dedicated to ensuring that pediatric patients receive the best possible care," said Raoul Quintero, President of Americas for Getinge. "With that goal in mind, we created the 'Color for the Kids!' program to support The Children's Heart Foundation, the country's leading organization solely committed to congenital heart defect research funding."

"With this new program, we want everyone to have a colorful summer, especially the smallest patients, whom we are most passionate about helping," said Anton Yarovoy, Marketing Manager for Chest Drains at Getinge. "As part of our commitment to pediatric patients, we continue to fund initiatives to help them and develop products specifically for use by this patient population."

Getinge's portfolio of pediatric cardiac products includes the Pediatric OASIS Dry Suction Water Seal Chest Drain, which is used with infants and pediatric patients to allow blood, fluid or air to drain from the chest cavity so the lungs can fully expand. Other pediatric products include the QUADROX-i neonatal and pediatric oxygenator and SERVO-i ventilators for pediatric and neonatal patients.
