In brief: No

A pr interval represents the time of conduction from the time it originates in the sa node, depolarizes the atria causing contraction and reaches the av node.
A cardioversion is a procedure to shock the heart back into a normal rhythm and does not correct intrinsic pathway defects. A pacemaker is used for that purpose when necessary, .
