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?

In brief: 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.
