I forgot to ask this earlier today: Does a cutting/tearing injury that isn't exposed to the air--something like a torn muscle, say, or the tissue around a shattered bone--run much of a risk of getting infected? I'm thinking probably not since it doesn't come in contact with the sort of contaminants that an external cut would. But if the injured person already had an infection of some kind, would it be likely for the bacteria or virii or whatever to attack the injury?
