1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Treatment of first degree av block is not required except in very severe cases with a very long delay in conduction from the sinoatrial node to the av node.
In these very rare cases, the treatment is usually a cardiac pacemaker. Otherwise the condition is of little to now concern.
