When I'm panicking I almost always forget to breathe.
On the way to the casino I would start getting really panicky, then realized I wasn't breathing, so I'd do the deep slow breaths...
then the panic would subside and that helped prevent a major panic attack and kept me going in my travels... rather than turning around.. which I always do....
