Real Meaning of Medical Caduceus?

"Some elements of the medical industry remain constant, however.
Pediatricians will continue to use lollipops as tongue-depressors and some old jokes regarding the profession will remain timely. The emblem of the profession will continue to be the caduceus, which PhDs describe as the staff of Aesculapius. MDs, on the other hand, will continue to see it as two lawyers dancing around a Maypole."
