Characteristics

First degree AV block is a misnomer in that every P wave is conducted to the ventricles, however, with a PR interval exceeding 200 msec. Prolonged PR conduction, a more appropriate classification for this conduction disturbance, may be the result of conduction delay within the atrium, AV node, bundle of His or bundle branches. Prolongation of the PR interval most often indicates AV nodal conduction delay.
