Causes Of Sense Of Suffocation
My wife is gasping for air once she comes out of her seizure, I understand it is normal but can this cause suffocation or death?
Very unlikely: There can be tightness of her vocal cords, which should relax in a few moments. Keep antiseizure meds around, such as suppositories like diazapan.

Elhers danlos and petcus excavatum, at work my chest muscles get fatigued and feel like im suffocating similar anaphylactic shock which causes it?
Different: You need to talk to a chest doctor to find out what can be done about your chest muscles. If the pectus contributes to the breathing problem, it can be corrected with surgery. In anaphylaxis the problem would be at the throat usually associated with skin involvement (flushing itching, hives etc) at the same time). Either you survive or die from it within minutes to hours- not a persistent issue.

Unsure: Check the normal range for your reference lab but for ours it is normal. If you are having sob you should have an ultrasound of the thyroid. Sob with thyroid enlargement is an indication for surgery. If your voice is off you should have it examined by an otolaryngologist.

70% brain damage, not in a single area, due to lack of oxygen (caused by asphyxia), what are the chances to awaken and regain full consciousness?
Unlikely: The extent of brain damage is not as important as the specific areas of the brain that are affected. So, if the pons or medulla were affected, you would be considered brain dead already. But, if you loose that much area, you will have significant mental status changes and impairments of motor function. This is not a good circumstance.
That is: Pretty fast. I do not think this is something to worry about. But check with your lung doc and ask about CPET to know for sure. Good luck
