About myself:

I am retired - mainly teaching and scientific career.  I have a PhD in a scientific discipline. I have no financial interest in any of the above.

I have a close relative who has epilepsy and who sometimes goes into status - continuous fits - one after another. Sometimes fits end fatally, but the medical staff were unable to provide any description of the mechanism of death.

On the basis of what I could find out, I devised my own action plan - and equipped myself appropriately. 

On one occasion I turned a life-threatening situation into a minor incident.  The action I needed to take turned out to be quite easy.
