What you describe may or may not have been a seizure, in the sense of a convulsion. There is no specific relationship between seizures and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). This can happen to anyone, with or without lung disease. If a person coughs long enough and hard enough their oxygen level can drop and cause loss of consciousness. This is called cough syncope. If this should happen again, be sure that his oxygen is on and working correctly.
