In brief: See below:

There is no specific treatment for this condition.
Critical care docs monitor the pressure in the brain, blood gases, and blood acid-base balance (ph). Treatments may include: •breathing support (a breathing machine may be needed during a deep coma) •fluids by IV to provide electrolytes and glucosesteroids to reduce swelling in the brain.

By the time Reye syndrome develops, there is a downward spiral most kids follow.
Treatment when it was common consisted of supportive care. IV fluids, blood pressure support, breathing support, etc. Most died but a few survived within a week. Research was hampered by small numbers and rapid decline.Today it is quite rare.
