How did Madeline Usher survive without food or water?

In *The Fall of the House of Usher*, Madeline Usher is put in the vault for a week, without food or water, in a coffin. This is in addition to the fact that she had been sick, and so wasn't at her healthiest then. **How did she survive without food and water?**
